Hard In The Paint

So I’m joining Medium….. I’m going Hard in The Paint this year….

If I’m speaking a different language to you here is the Urban dictionary definition for Hard In The Paint:

Hard in the paint

To approach a problem, obstacle, or challenge with supreme confidence of success through a commitment to use all facilities available to one’s self to achieve a goal.

The term has etymological roots in the basketball parlance that describes an attempt to score in the crowded and highly contested area directly under and immediately adjacent to the raised hoop on a basketball court, or “painted” area. Shot attempts in this area are traditionally only successful when made with a strong conviction to score, skill, overpowering strength, or a combination thereof (i.d. “going hard”).

I think it’s a combination of things….. me recently having a birthday… me being a grandfather…. or just a New Year.

Let the journey begin…..
